Village Hall

The Village Hall, on Gainsborough Road, was built in 1885 by the owner of Winthorpe Hall, G T Pierce Duncombe, having previously been a church, which he had commissioned eleven years earlier in the nearby village of Brough.  In 1938, Mr W J Need, at that time the owner of Winthorpe Hall and the former church, presented the latter to the village as a reading room; it was later requisitioned by the army to be used as a store in World War II. In 1951, the building was refurbished and became the Village Hall we know today. A fuller history of the hall can be found in the Village Scrapbook. 

The Village Hall is a registered Charity, run by the Board of Trustees for the benefit of the village and for use by village organisations. The village hall is used regularly for meetings of the Parish Council, Neighbourhood Watch and Winthorpe History Group, as well as for social gatherings such as Community Cuppa and Winthorpe Amateur Wine Association evenings. Local artist Max Neale has a weekly art class. On election days it is a polling station. Fundraising activities often take place at the village hall, which can also be hired for private parties and events, as well as coffee mornings, AGMs and village activities.

There is a defibrillator fixed to the wall, to the right of the front door. The code is CY543.
